Audi Performance Exhausts, Car Covers and Other Fine Car Parts

Long lurking in the shadow of two German luxury auto giants, Audi has quietly been gaining ground as sales of Mercedes vehicles continue to lag. Within the next few years, Audi is likely to surpass Mercedes and sneak up right behind BMW. These are heady days for Audi, but they aren't too many years removed from the time when critics called the cars "warmed over" Volkwagens. Times are a changing and auto fans know it. Let's take a look at some of the best selling accessories for the Audi lover's car! Custom Tail Lights Altezza [or Euro] tail lights continue to remain popular with the aftermarket crowd. On older model Audi cars, including the 90 and 200, these parts look the best as newer models reflect the latest design standards. Car Covers Ask any owner of a classic Audi how they maintain their car's appearance and they will tell you: wash, wax, and cover. That's right, washing and waxing alone are not enough.

Jaguar XK Strong V-8 Engine

The new Jaguar XK is a great looking supercar, is quite a lot different from the previous model, and will handle and go better. The better performance is largely the result of the advanced lightweight aluminum design. This is the lightest supercar in its class, and the weight is a good deal less than some very exotic machinery. It's got this deep chin, with its own air intakes, both for the radiator and brakes, then the traditional oval of Jaguar sports cars. The headlamps aren't very original, but then there is long hood designed to help reduce any injury to a pedestrian who should get in the way and the long, flowing coach roof merging into a sharp back end. Elegant and cool, this makes a distinctive supercar. Smart convertible as well as coupe Then there is the convertible, which retains a fabric hood to give plenty of luggage space a folding steel roof takes up oodles of space - and that, too, looks a million dollars, open or closed. Some roadsters look pretty odd with the

Less Weight Ferrari F430 Scuderia

Once again, Ferrari has moved the goalposts in the compact mid-engined supercar market. The new 458 Italia has no less than 90 bhp more power than the superb F430, and a new seven-speed sequential gearbox. And, this is a superb looking car, that looks quite different from its predecessor. The engine is basically an enlarged version of the direct injection 4.3 liter unit in the California, but thanks to far more sporty valve timing and the larger capacity of 4.5 liters, it churns out no less than 570 bhp. To give  you the best chance of using that power, there is a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox which replaces the automated manual box of the F430 - this is similar to the box on the California, but installed in a transaxle to suit the mid-engine configuration. All this results in an extremely fast supercar which just tops 200 mph, and can reach 60 mph in 3.3 seconds. Fantastic! New styling by Pininfarina Visually, the 458 looks different, but is still unmistakably Ferrari, with wide twi

Reported from several sources, XL7 will share a platform with Ertiga in the low-cost MPV class. In addition, the engine installed in the XL7 is similar to the Ertiga, namely the K15B DOHC with a cubic of 1,500 cc and has automatic to manual transmission options. THE LSUV SEGMENT Although it is claimed to use the same platform and engine as the Ertiga, Suzuki has confirmed that its product will play in the LSUV genre, aka low sport utility vehicle. The latest Suzuki products will definitely have a new model with a different segment from its older products. A number of information circulating in cyberspace reveals that the XL7 will compete with Terios, Rush, and BR-V in the world car market. This fact is further strengthened by the appearance of an official statement from Riecky Patrayudha, a PT SIS Head of Service. In more detail, he explained that even though the XL7 might be the same as the Ertiga on a basis, the XL7 will have the characteristics of a stronger SUV, not like the Ertiga
